Obama Promises More Low-Cost Mortgages…

President Barack Obama promised Saturday to reduce mortgage costs as a key part of his plan to improve the economy.

Analysts applauded the move, saying that making low-cost mortgages widely available could stabilize housing markets and jump start new home construction.

Beyond that, observers say aid for the troubled housing market will help blunt the anger many Americans feel over the financial bailout as the executives of firms that received billions take bonuses while average people lose their homes.

Any positive news makes me happy for both my buyers and sellers.  My buyerswill be able to possibly take advantage of these historically low interest rates and sellers may see more activity and possibly a SOLD sign in front of their home!

Obama – Mr. President

Election Day has been a day of anticipation for me.  Many speculate that the economy, the war in Iraq and the real estate market would begin to change and improve after  the elections.  Now, I anticipate that much needed change in our nation.

After a massive voter turn out – with more than 14 million voters than our last election day, Presidential elect Obama, completed a historic journey to presidency – promising CHANGE.  Thousands filled streets to celebrate the making of a historic day in America.

It was a moving and memorable day for me – beginning with taking my 12 year son with me to vote, to hearing McCain’s gracious speech – and ending with President elect Obama speech in Chicago.
